Geoff and I moved to our present house in December 2013. Starting from scratch it's been a huge challenge but we love it.

@emch I totally agree! Hepatica nobilis sounds better but still means liver😂

Looks like a Green Shield bug, maybe.#joanboston. They feed on plant sap and leaves of trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants.

We got ours at an alpine plant show, you can get them online too from people like Edrom plants in Northumberland. Trouble with that is the postage is often more than the plants😂 Jacqueline @awomanonabike

It’s a fabulous place but rather remote to visit. We’ve been a couple of times but they are often at small plant fairs @awomanonabike

I’ve just taken a look. I will have cycled past it on my way to Edinburgh a couple of years ago 🙄 Mail order is the way to go I think!

Isn’t it Jane? It only had three flowers last year, but looks like there’s more this time. Another inspiration from GardenTags @pelly

I had mine in small pots, buried in a raised bed! They were fine outside for the last couple of years but not this year for some reason!
